Random Music News for September 2, 2014

A note to advice to anyone who doesn’t want naked pictures of themselves on the Internet: DON’T TAKE NAKED PICTURES OF YOURSELF AND PUT THEM ON THE INTERNET!

  1. The naked picture situation has taken such a toll on Jennifer Lawrence that she and her new boyfriend, Chris Martin, have gone on vacation. Please don’t take any more pictures, okay?
  2. And on that note, be careful what you do with this new iPhone app called iVibrate. It’s a “personal massager.” Right.
  3. Led Zeppelin…scarves?
  4. Radiohead has updated their app.
  5. Remember how Courtney Love was supposed to have her memoirs out by now? Here’s an update.
  6. Do you consider yourself a creative person? Then you need to say “no” more.
  7. It’s not looking good for HD Radio. It’s probably a good thing that Canada passed on this stage of radio’s evolution.
  8. YouTube now gets over one billion visitors a month who watch 6 billion hours of video. And 40% of that viewing is on mobile platforms. That’s up 80% in a year.
  9. Jimi Jameson, singer for Surviour, has died. He replaced original singer Dave Bickler (the guy we hear on “Eye of the Tiger”) in 1984.
